Tease about the Second Annual Wes-Inspired Halloween Costume Contest / Yankee Journal entries still being accepted

We are doing the Halloween costume contest again. So, get designing! Last year, we gave away luxurious Darjeeling Limited prize packages. Details and prizes for this year coming soon! Check out some of the entries from last year.

And, as announced earlier, the deadline for submissions to the first issue of The Yankee Journal has been extended to October 31, 2008. We have received many fantastic, Max Fischer-worthy entries, but we’d love to hear from more of you. Details.
